When I came to Dr Andrews I was in so much chronic pain. So other Dr,s who could not figure out why I had so much pain And wanted to send me to Mayo's. Then I remember I had a card with Dr, Andrews name and called for an appt. within a week I saw the Dr, within two seconds he knew it was my right hip causing my pain, a week later I had a new hip and all the pain was gone.

Excellency experience, I gotten total knee replacement and Dr. Andrews & Northwest Surgery Center took very good care of me, and I love the way they explain procedures as they gotten me ready for surgery, and also the follow up call from the Surgery Center, and Bones and Joint Center has the best Physical Therapy treatment in Northwest Indiana. in Northwest Indiana
in Hobart, IN |
Nightmare bilateral knee replacement. Only prior tests were x-rays. Dr. cut xtra hospital days, sent me home to no caretaker, did not follow up when home nurse & physical therapist were over a week late. Follow up visit wait times were 2-5 hours. In 6 months, I was going through chemo for advanced stage cancer, having problems with all joints & couldn't get appointment. Finally got appointment, examined knees said doing fine, shot for shoulder - go see a back surgeon & summarily dismissed me.
